Former first lady Michelle Obama says she can never forgive President Donald Trump for spreading rumors that her husband was not born in America, according to excerpts from her upcoming book that was obtained by The Washington Post. What if someone with an unstable mind loaded a gun and drove to Washington? She writes that Trump's central role in pushing the falsehood put her family at risk.

In her memoir, the former first lady also revealed that she had to deal with racist comments as well as rocky times during her marriage to Barack Obama, who was often away in the course of his career, so they had to see a marriage counselor.

She remembers how her body "buzzed with fury" after seeing the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape, in which Trump brags about sexually assaulting women.

"Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy", Trump added.

"The whole (birther) thing was insane and mean-spirited, of course, its underlying bigotry and xenophobia hardly concealed", she writes, in excerpts of the book published by ABC News and The Washington Post.

In her memoir set to come out soon, Obama wrote that Trump's support for the conspiracy theory that her husband, former President Barack Obama, was born outside the USA was "crazy and mean-spirited", and rooted in bigotry. She summed up his non-verbal message as "I can hurt you and get away with it", as she accused him of trying to stalk Clinton around the stage and "diminish her presence".


Michelle's book, 'Becoming Michelle, ' is about to be released, and she is extremely candid about her marriage, saying 20 years ago she felt "broken" after suffering a miscarriage.

Michelle, 54, will head out on a multi-city arena tour to promote the memoir, with celebrity friends like Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon tapped to moderate the events. "I'll never forgive him for many other things".

She revisits the thrill of her romance with Barack, which began when she was his advisor at a Chicago law firm, describing it as a "toppling blast of lust, gratitude, fulfillment, wonder".

Others just trashed her memoir as a waste of trees.

Before he became president, Trump spent years propagating the false accusation that President Obama was not a US citizen and thus an illegitimate president.
